New Surface Pro 3 aimed at BYOD

Microsoft Canada opened up its Surface Cafe in downtown Toronto for the launch of the Surface Pro 3.

CDN was on hand to take in all the action and got an exclusive interview with James Nicolson, the Surface product manager for Microsoft Canada.

Nicolson said that the new Surface acts more like a notebook than a tablet. In this video feature interview, we explore Microsoft’s new position with the product along with its plans to use the solution provider channel to help it address the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.

Microsoft is working with solution providers for the new Surface. The company has developed an authorized device reseller (ADR) program. Currently, CDN Top 100 solution providers Softchoice, CDW Canada, Insight Canada, Compugen, LongView, and Software One Canada are members of ADR. The ADR also has perennial Top 100 solution provider Northern Micro and Misha Technologies for federal government business.
